Before and After...

 I was getting a little
panicky, my quilter was 
having her second baby
I wasn't sure what I was going
to do.
 It's a well known fact I
cannot run a long-arm 
even though the quilt shop
has a perfectly wonderful one to rent.
 Just by accident I met a 
very kind lady that quilts 
took on my projects.
 I love feathers, the more the better....
The very kind lady did 
an outstanding job of quilting!
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

A Sunny Monday....

Yellow -  sunny, happy, bright,
joyful, warm, cozy, yellow.....
Kaffe Fassett fabrics
Painter's Threads,
make for a very fun project.
These flowers are pretty
boring until the 
embroidery work...
I hope where ever you are
today, your warm!
We have sun but it just hit 50
but at least there is no ice or snow,
just sun.....

Summer Cottages....

Finally got this quilt 
all sewn together,
(Summer Cottages - I like that name)
got the threads,
got the 9 inches of fabric 
(via UPS Ground - 7 days)
and yesterday I still  needed 1.5" of fabric.
And I love it!
Do you think one can love
country colors 
these beautiful crazy prints too?
I do know that I love
these beautiful threads 
plan on using them as much as I can...
the rooftops are made
from that grunge fabric from Moda,
I love it too.....
 I love this little guy,
had to buy him a little collar 
this morning,
he had his little operation 
he's not too happy today.
I hope by tomorrow 
he will be back to playing 
with his toys 
wanting to go outside, 
this sad look is pretty sad....
Have an awesome day!

 Finished all the embroidery,
I love using the Painter's Thread...
 I will have to catch
the sunlight just right to make 
the metallic thread twinkle for the picture...
Now I have to take this 
little guy for a walk,
its 58 outside and sunny!
I hope where ever you are today,
your warm and safe.....

Valentine's Day

Tried to wake the 
little pup up to 
wish you all 
Happy Valentine's Day
I wanted to get one of those
cute little bowties
on the little guy
and have him
give you a sweet little look,
but we have a little Westie
that likes to sleep in,
he goes from his bed,
to our bed,
to the heater vent
this is where he is headed now....
Happy Valentine's Day to you all!
Elizabeth Ann & Toby
ps - hopefully quilt pictures
will be shown this week,
ran right out of thread again
and a 1/4 of fabric (fabric is coming
by UPS Ground which takes 7 days -
can you honestly believe it......)

Ground Hog's Day......

Toby's wondering why 
all the fuss
about a groundhog.....
 Started working on 
this fun little summer quilt,
trying to figure out a cute name...
Of course if I could get pass making 
the house block, I could get on 
with the embroidery and naming it!
I spent all afternoon yesterday
trying to sew one together, gave up
today and made a pattern with 
good old graph paper.
Apparently I cut my sample block
completely wrong but it seem to sew up
Believe me the word perfect didn't 
work for any of the others....
We hope you had an awesome day!
Elizabeth Ann
P.S. Thank you all for the wonderful 
birthday wishes today!

Spring Fling - Some Woolly Spring........

 I got all the little six inch 
blocks embroidered
and set into a cute little quilt...
 I adore it.....
At first the turquoise
I didn't see eye to eye...
 You know how much
I love pumpkins
fall colors, but....
you just can't
hang pumpkins all year long
in Idaho you really need
some bright colors
in January....
All I have left to do is
some cute applique pieces
on the left border
and its off to the quilter....
And this is next little project,
don't you just love it????
Have a wonderful week!
Elizabeth Ann
ps - the daughter came
and set me up on
Instragram last week,
look for 
Sunflower Patterns,
Toby and I will be waiting
for your visit....
